Product Abstract: Lime is a small evergreen tree that produces a small, sour fruit very similar to Lemon. The fruits themselves are green in color with a fleshy interior. Historically, limes were used to prevent sailors from developing scurvy.

Dilute well before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Rating: I ordered this to use in a lime blend for soap and while it disappointed me there, it is a wonderful scent. ( didn't hold its scent too well in soap) If u love the smell of fresh cut lemons , this is it!

Rating: Lovely scent. Very piercing when diffused. Mix it with sweet orange to create a nice "wake-up" blend. Also using a few drops in my after-shave and works wonders.

Rating: No other word for it, I LOVE IT. I use it crazy in my products. It smells particularly amazing in my coconut and lime deodorant.
Rating: This EO has gotten better with age and smells just lovely now (about 3 months later)
By:Stephanie, Lethbridge, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Sep-2015
Rating: I have ordered this product several times now and it is OUTSTANDING!!! There is a crisp sharp sense to the lime aroma just like you have taken a fresh lime from the bowl and cut in half - my mouth waters every time I open the container to make a blend. Well done New Directions for sourcing this one!!!
Rating: I purchased this and the Mexican key lime to compare. Both are authentically lime peel. The key lime is more complex, this is a simpler fragrance. It does remind me of cleaning products, whereas the key lime smells like green jubejubes. I like both.

By:Leeann, Grand Valley, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-May-2008
Rating: This is such a great smelling EO. I ran out half way through an order and had to buy some (at a much more expensive price) locally. I had a lime fragrant oil available to me but you just can't beat the scent of the pure lime!
And what a great price NDA!!
By:Stephanie, London, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Oct-2008
Rating: I purchased the 500ml size which is so affordable, considering the quality. I am so glad I did. Added it to lip balm for an intoxicating effect. Also made cp soap with it. Can't get enough of the scent!!
By:Farkhanda, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Feb-2010

By:Brenda, Victoria, Alberta
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Feb-2010
Rating: My fav citrus scent, and my fav essential oil. So amazing and fresh with no candy smell but still not too sour. Loved by many.
Rating: Definitely a must have in every house. It is an excellent antiseptic oil and therefore I use it in my all shower gels, shampoos and every liquid cleaning products. Also it has a very pleasant citrus smell when used in aromatherapy and it blends well with almost every EO. It is well known to clarify and renew your spirit (I like lime better than lemon). I almost use it every day. Highly recommended.
Thank you ND for having this precious oil.

Rating: A zesty, affordable detoxifier, this lime oil just added a ton of zing! to my cold processed avocado butter soap.
By:Tracey, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Jan-2007
Rating: I mix this oil in a spray bottle with patchouli, tee tree, and of course water. I use it as a cleaner for my kitchen, bathroom, etc. I also spray my plants with the mixture and they love it too! So much better than any "air freshener" out there.
Rating: Lime sherbert, anyone? I kid you not, that's exactly what it smells like! A nice, natural lime scent that leaves you wanting to sniff for more!
By:Lisanne, St. Catharines, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Mar-2007
Rating: Very clean and strong aroma. A great additon to many blends of essential oil and pricing is good.
By:Trudy, Warkworth, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Jun-2006
Rating: A sharp fresh scent exactly like a newly squeezed lime. A wonderful EO that is terrific on it's own or blended with other EO's such as patchouli or ginger or any other citrus EO
